EndNote 5 is a new version of the world's most popular bibliographic software. Over 300,000 researchers, students and librarians use EndNote to search online bibliographic databases, organize their references, and create instant bibliographies. EndNote 5 introduces a new level of integration with Microsoft Word® and a traveling reference library that follows the document for easy collaboration with colleagues. These new features make EndNote the Easy Bibliography Writer!

Cite While You Write and Instant Formatting in Microsoft Word®

Cite While You Write makes EndNote 5 the easy bibliography writer. With it you can locate and insert citations without leaving Microsoft Word. EndNote 5's new instant formatting creates your bibliography as you type-no waiting, no guessing, no extra steps.
Cite While You Write locates references in your open EndNote library and provides you with a selection list. If you don't find what you're looking for, simply modify the search to receive a new list. EndNote retains your last ten searches to easily recall previous selection lists. Highlight one or more references to cite.

As you insert a citation in your document, EndNote formats the in-text citation and builds the bibliography instantly. The only time you'll use the Format Bibliography command is to change the selected output style or modify layout options and Instant Formatting settings.

Other new Cite While You Write features:

  • Use new Tool menu options and a toolbar in Microsoft Word
  • Customize in-text citations for those instances when names and dates are excluded and prefix, suffix or page numbers are included (supports author-date output styles)
  • Enter a note citation easily without the need for special codes (supports numeric output styles)
  • Remove codes in one step when submitting your manuscript to publishers
  • Access URLs included in your formatted bibliography-EndNote creates the hot link automatically.

A traveling library that follows your document for easy collaboration

Sharing your document for collaborative writing has never been easier with EndNote 5's new traveling library feature. EndNote 5 creates a hidden traveling library automatically as you cite references in Microsoft Word. The traveling library contains complete reference data for all of your citations. When you're ready to send this document to colleagues for editing, they'll have all the necessary information to add, delete and reformat citations. Wherever the document goes, the references travel with it.

A Spell Checker available for editing references

Misspellings and typos are history with the new Spell Check feature in EndNote 5. Check highlighted text or an entire reference for spelling errors. EndNote 5 includes multi-language and discipline-specific dictionaries for greater accuracy.
